Product Description

Amazon Review

This is the latest book in Willis Hall's hugely popular Vampire series that includes Vampire Park, The Vampire's Christmas and The Vampire's Holiday. At the story's outset, we find the hero, Count Alucard, the one and only vegetarian vampire, being mercilessly pursued by incompetent vampire hunters. Forced to leave the refuge of his Transylvanian castle, he joins the theatre and bumps into his old friend Henry Hollis, a meeting that signals the start of further fun and adventure.

Willis Hall writes with easy, witty style and good pace. This would be an excellent selection for slower or more reluctant readers, particularly boys. Definitely one to keep children wanting to read more in the series. (Ages 7 to 10) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Count Alucard is a vegetarian vampire. He prefers eating an apple to a head and drinking tomato juice to blood. He lives in Tolokovin in his giant castle. The people of Tolokovin have been trying to kill Count Alucard's ancestors since the time of the very first Count Dracula, and now the threat has been passed on to our hero, the vegetarian fruit bat transformer Count Alucard. Count Alucard joins a travelling theatre, and it's through the theatre that his life is saved. Henry and the Count then get back to Tolokovin in time for the local Saint Unfortunato's day. Most of this book is spent in and around Tolokovin and in parts of England. Willis Hall makes you picture the characters closely, helped by the brilliant illustrations by Tony Ross which add humour to this exciting book. Here is an example, 'The police sergeant paused and a cruel smile spread across his face as he added, gloating...'. Hall enlivens the story with jokes, and makes you imagine how it must have been to be the poor, tired, vegetarian Count Alucard. It is a brilliant read, helped by the way it is printed on the page, so that you have this for instance, 'He would no sooner sink his teeth into a red, juicy, fleshy plum'. Overall I think Hall's book is a great success and I cannot wait to read one of his other books, perhaps The Vampire's Christmas or Vampire Park.
